IF the Clintons had earned all of this cash (reportedly in the tens of millions of dollars) AFTER they BOTH were out of political office,
NOONE would probably care.
They have BOTH been out of office since her stint as Secretary of State ended in 2013...
So all that cash was paid to Bill and Hillary just for giving a speech?
Not because she was Secretary of State nor because she (and they) knew she would be running for president?
If the exact same thing had been done by someone like Bush, Trump, Romney, etc., you would have no problem with it?
I'll agree that they got paid a lot of money for a speech, but it is what it is... plenty of people get paid a lot of money for giving speeches. What kind of limits do you think should be imposed on the amount of money one is paid for giving a speech?
You completely ignored my question.
In your initial questions, you are simply expressing your beliefs, of which neither has any proof surfacing whatsoever. For the next question, I earlier stated that plenty of people get paid a lot of money for making speeches, and obviously I don't have a problem with it. Good for them. Satisfied?
You always seem to have a problem with the money other people make... as examples, in the past you've had problems with salaries teachers make, along with salaries of governmental (municipal) types... both of which you had the opportunity to choose as careers and did not.
So here are two questions for you:
1) What kind of limits do you think should be imposed upon "speech givers" and how would you implement them?
2) Why do you worry so much about what other people earn?
Still won't answer the simple question I asked. All I ever want to know is are the standards equally applied to all.
It is pretty obvious money is the number one problem facing US politics today.
If you want people to answer your questions, the polite thing to do is answer their questions, Not answer a question with a question.
Never mind. Typical response from you. I should have known better.
No, I don't believe all that money was paid to Bill & Hilary is for any reason other than that is what they require to come and give a speech. The rate is only set by what the market will bear.
